Sarah Moriarty – PhD candidate, Memorial University
Brothers IODP sulfur systematics
Sarah utilizes stable isotopes (Sr, multiple S isotopes) as a tool to constrain sub-seafloor fluid/rock interactions affecting hydrothermal fluid cycling and associated seafloor massive sulfide deposit formation at submarine hydrothermal vent sites from various different tectonic (i.e., arc volcano, mid-ocean ridge) sedimentary (i.e., sedimented vs. sediment-free) and magmatic (i.e., dacitic, ultramafic, and mafic-hosted) settings.
Sarah completed her BSc Hon. at Kutztown University, Pennsylvania, in 2017 and MSc at Memorial University in 2020 before joining John Jamieson’s working group as a CREATE trainee in 2020. She has extensive experience with the data acquisition during research cruises, totalling 5 weeks of ship time. Among her most notable academic recognitions are an NSF STEM Grant, and Federal Pell Grant.
